This week, I’m getting ready to travel from my home on the east coast of the United States, all the way to the west coast of the United States, in order to visit family. I’m excited to see my young nieces and nephews, but I’m anxious, too.
When I was younger I thought nothing of traveling alone—did it all the time, in fact, happily. That was before I was made aware of the dangers of traveling alone, especially for a woman. Over the years, my modes of traveling have changed to keep personal safety in mind—always accompanied by family, friends or colleagues.
Now, I’m taking a walk on the wild side again. J It’s good for me to step from my comfort zone every now and then.
So, my tickets are purchased—arriving and departing during daylight hours. My pickups and drop-offs to and from the airport are arranged. My suitcase is (mostly) packed.
Since I’m flying on a carrier that does not provide food on the plane, and I don’t have enough of a layover window mid-route to purchase meals, I need to think about food I can carry onboard with me. Do you have any ideas? What works well for you? Any tips or tricks for making air travel more comfortable?
Please leave me a comment—any support or advice is appreciated! I’m giving away a copy of my July Superromance, randomly-selected from the comments, with the winner posted on Saturday. Thank you for visiting and reading!
